    She’s ready for this responsibility. And a damned good shot.

  101. I don’t know how many of you like roasted chestnuts, but I made these a few weeks back with mom and they were awesome:

    http://www.bonappetit.com/recipes/2012/12/dan-romans-buttery-roasted-chestnuts-in-foil

    We substituted a little olive oil for the butter and omitted the salt. It was still darn good.

    When you buy chestnuts, squeeze each one with your fingers. Do not buy any that have any flex or give in the shell. They should be rock hard.

    The ones that give or pop are no good.

  102. I do not think I have ever had a roasted chestnut. I’ve sung about them

  114. I’m still fretting about what kind of desserts to make for Christmas. It’s going to be a cookie assortment. I’m thinking cookies I haven’t made before.
    Or maybe gooey-butter.
    How about apple pie chimichangas?

  115. Amazon has it Beasn.

  117. Was going to make kipfels but man, those take too long and I have to work Xmas eve.

  118. Roasted chestnuts are a childhood-memory thing for me. My grandmother used to bake them, in late Fall.

    It is a sweet, fragrant, mealy-soft nutmeat. They are especially good ground up in savory recipes like stuffing.

    But I just like to pop them hot from the shell with some salt and oil.

    Heh.

  129. Beansesese,

    I made oreo stuffed tollhouse cookies for my father in law`s birthday, and they were great. I just used store bought dough and oreos, wrapped two cookies worth around the oreo, and baked them a little longer. You do have to push the cookie back together a few times to keep it from spreading out too far.

    ( Look at the dog giving advice to the master baker.)

    ps. my profession is decorator, not so much baker – that’s a home job SYWM

  143. I agree pepe, now is not the time to be buying at outrageous prices. Let things settle down. My friend who has been a great resource for all things gun related tells me all the time: why wait? That prompted me to buy plenty of magazines years ago.

  144. HAH! I know which post Scott read!

  145. Linzer cookies! Great stuff. I have a very old, good recipe, from a high school friend’s old-country family.

    I used to make them a lot, when I was a young fat chick.

  146. Yeah, I scored a couple of factory 20 round mags on Friday, paid double the November price, and am pleased that I found them.

  150. We used to have mince meat tarts for Christmas with the cookies eventually the mince meat went from being a cupcake sized thing to a sheet pan sandwich it was still pretty good

  151. I counted 15 30 round and 4 20 round AR mags in my foot locker. I am thinking that is some $$ if I sell them for $50 or so.

  152. I think we have some mince living in the garage.

    Once I find a job I am heading to Hungary.

  177. Oh, NOW they tell me it costs extra for the “live” option.

    I had coffeecake, sausage&egg casserole, and chocolate chip cookies yesterday. I didn’t want them, but that’s what mom made and I feel rude if I abstain when she cooks. Today, I suffer for it.

    I’ve pretty much settled into the ‘none of it matters at all’ camp. Only massive economic growth will get us out of this mess.

    Energy production might be a way out, but TFG is talking about moving global warming legislation in the next year or so. Liberals are always 75-30 years behind, but lecture us on being old fashioned.

  225. The Saudi-funded anti-fracking movement’s sentiment is getting annoyingly common. Otherwise-rational people who know literally nothing about resource extraction get their jimmies all rustled about it without having ever read anything about lithium mining, or, well mining, period. Makes me want to shoot them with the bug-a-salt.

  226. I know, I’ll write it up at some point in a comment best timed to annoy Wiserbud.

    Ooooo, like a Christmas present! Good call.

  227. Energy, biotech, and 3D printing are our likely best bets. None of them will support the massive welfare state we’ve built, though, so our best case scenario is still ending up as a giant Germany with better weather.

  228. Good morning, good people!

    MJ, I had a dream last night, you were in it, you were a financial planner and you said “I have two white papers for you!” And I said (genius that I am), “white board don’t you mean white boards??”

  229. HA! I make fun of myself in my sleep.

  230. I’ve pretty much settled into the ‘none of it matters at all’ camp. Only massive economic growth will get us out of this mess.

    Seriously, since the election, I have about 0.01327% interest in politics. It’s just become too frustrating/disheartening/maddening. I know that it will take time to turn the machine around, but at the moment…
    do.not.give.any.fucks.at.all.

    #LIB

  231. And FTR, that disappoints me. I mean, myself. That I’m no longer interested. Does that even make sense?

    *pours plain coffee into the bong, puts crushed up red meth and a bold but delicate swiss almond mocha fine ground coffee into the bowl*

  232. HA! I make fun of myself in my sleep.

    Sometimes we point and giggle too Mare. Ha ha!

    Care for a hit?

  233. Why, yes, yes I would.

  234. “I mean, myself. That I’m no longer interested. ”

    I had this exact conversation with my family yesterday. Since my girls were there I put on a stiff upper lip and said something like, “….regardless, it’s important we remain politically active to do what we can. We don’t want to be like the “low information non voters!”

    Secretly, I wanted to yell, “SCREW IT ALL!!!”

  235. My youngest was telling us that before the election a good friend of hers said he hadn’t voted because he didn’t know enough about the candidates/issues. She said she got really mad and said, “I’ve had my absentee in for months, and I took the little free time I have to find out what’s going on.” “You have to do the same, it’s your civic duty.”

    Later, he said he voted and convinced his mom to vote too.

    Dennis Prager has said, if we just convince one person each, we could change things.

  236. Can I get a scoop of that? I want to toss it in the french press with some fair-trade roasted cocoa beans.

    I wanted unfair trade roasted cocoa beans, but the free market failed me.

  237. Also, SCREW IT ALL!!

  238. Secretly, I wanted to yell, “SCREW IT ALL!!!”

    Exactly. I still watch, and pay attention, but it’s the passion that’s gone.

    I think next time I’ll try the blue meth with the swiss almond mocha.

  239. Fuck the free market!!1!

  240. I’m drinking coffee that has tasty coconut flakes in it.

    Oh, and meth, lots of meth.

  241. Cyn, you’re better than me, I was faking it for the kids.

  242. Did I miss the airing of grievances?

    Screw you!

  243. MJ, I had a dream last night, you were in it, you were a financial planner and you said “I have two white papers for you!” And I said (genius that I am), “white board don’t you mean white boards??”
    ———————
    Why no black papers? Racist!

  244. I have to fake it with mine too, Mare. They’re old enough to see what’s going on around them and form cogent opinions (unlike most voters it seems), so it must be done. They’re too young to lose their passion yet.

  245. As I’ve said before, we will get through this. Western Civ will not die at the hands of these monsters. Don’t “fake it” for the kids, help them to see their place in the traditions that stretch back to ancient Rome. Rome fell, America might, but the ideas must live on.

  246. Whose turn is it to kill Leon?

  247. Mine, probably. I shirked last time.

  248. HA! Get on that would ya?

  249. Did I miss the airing of grievances?

    Screw you!

    No, YOU!!

  250. And to all a good night!

    Good night to you sir!

  258. Right after I knock down some trees out front, Dave.

    Then I’ll watch while you guys herniate.

  259. I always hated the Feets of Strength; glad we’re not doing that this year.

    *hangs a pine tree scenty tree thing on the shoe rack*

  260. I was supposed to meet the family at church this morning. They did not show up. That is cruel.

  261. ******** Is it Executive Decision Time as to when we’re gonna do this SS thing tonight, or should I just thow up a poat and everyone (who has the permissions, otherwise email a pic to me) can add a photo of their gift?

    Now where’s wiser with that fucking floor gavel to maintain some order…

  262. That sucks, Vman.

    *hands him my coffee meth bong*

    ‘Eere. Need a light?

  263. Wiser is hiding from my Salty Ballz.

  264. Thanks Tiger Chick

  265. As I was trying to stay awake I realized I did not drink coffee in my hurry to make it on time.

  266. We all hide from your Salty Ballz, Leon.

  267. Yikes, stood up at church w/ no coffee, that’s rough. I hope Santa’s good to you.

    Second Timothy: Difficult times will come.

  271. I’ll have to postpone my SS until tomorrow. Package is at my office. I am at my home. :(

  272. Who was Vman going to meet?

  273. gotta go to a family gathering.
    see y’all later-

  274. Thanks, Mare. So very true.

  275. Package is at my office. I am at my home.

    And…???!?

    Go get it! We’ll wait.

  276. Later, Jamster. Stay out of trouble/don’t get caught.

  277. Are we supposed to care?

  278. Hey, Jam, don’t kill anyone, have fun!

  279. So, I’mma go to Sun City, pick up the little old lady in her car, drive 3h to Redondo Beach, drop her off, return, park her car and come home. Reverse on the 27th.

    I suppose I should try to sober up and maybe take a shower between now and noon.

  280. Mare – no.

    Fin.

  281. Well now if he can’t kill anyone, how’s he supposta have fun?!??11ty!

  283. Cyn’s very decisive today, I like it!

  284. Hey, Cyn, you scrub my back, I’ll scrub your front?

  285. I like being decisive! Except for those times when I’m not sure whether I should be or not.

  286. Oh, yeah, sure; okay, Xbrad.

    http://is.gd/1UCoPL

  287. Okay, enough fucking around and bonging coffee and meth. Time to get some crap done before my mother decides she’s had enough and needs to bring the boys home.

  296. I made a batch of these: http://nomnompaleo.com/post/14764008847/nom-nom-chocolate-truffles

    …last night, and rolled them up in cocoa this morning. My idea is this: to tell my family we are sick, too sick to go see the new baby, and then keep all the bacons and chocolates that I supposedly made for them.

    Also, a billion little pecan cookies, sicilian ricotta-filled chocolate cakes, and some almond brittle.

    Although, they probably won’t believe me. I’m a terrible faker.

    *thinks about picking a phony fight with my older sister, who will turn it into a family-wide row*

    Heh. So easy.

    *thinks about missing out on meeting the new little baby*

    Dammit.

  297. A sister who knows how to pick a fight with her sister?

    The hell you say.

  298. Cuomo’s talking about confiscating guns. If he does that half as efficiently as he handled the Hurricane the citizens of New York who own guns will be fine.

  299. Xbrad figured out my little ploy.

    Meeting a new baby is worth the self control necessary to be with family more than five minutes.

    Also, worth the sacrifice of those delicious sounding Christmas treats…almost worth it.

  300. Happy Festivus, my peoples! In celebration of Hanukkah, I’m offering you the recipe for my special Christmas chocolate truffles. You know, for Kwanzaa.

    This is how you keep a broad audience, people.

  301. Greetings, gay apparel donners.

  302. Never forget:

  303. hahaha…good one, Sean.

    And, applicable too!

  304. Are the girls coming home Mare?

  305. Speaking of food, I feel worlds better after long fast (20 hours) followed by a nice breakfast.

    6 slices of bacon, 16 scrambled eggs, 4 oz cheddar, hot salsa. Bliss.

  306. I had an everything bagel with cream cheese and applewood smoked bacon for breakfast today. Were I Jewish, this would be an indication of self-hating.

  307. My oldest has been home for a week, my youngest got home on Friday. We’ve been having a blast and laughing the whole time.

    We’re going to go see the Hobbit today.

  308. How do you eat 16 eggs? Shouldn’t you have had 8 slices of bacon so it would divide up more evenly?

  309. Fortunate that my porch is at 40 degrees right now, because there is no frickin’ way all this stuff is going to fit in the kitchen fridge.

  310. Sixteen eggs??!?

    Cool Hand Leon.

  311. I might have to try that truffle recipe for New Year’s.

  312. Wait, I yelled at my younger daughter for not being patient with a point I was trying to make. She apologized, so all is well.

  313. 16 is about my limit. I was pretty hungry. 6 slices of bacon is all I can fit in my pan at once. I like to fry the bacon first, then set it aside on a towel to drain, then pour off the bacon grease into a jar and fry the eggs in what sticks to the pan. I usually just crack all the eggs into my blender and “stir” until lemon-colored, then pour it out into the hot pan.

    It is unlikely that I will be hungry enough to eat again today.

  314. Do you have a secure cooler, Laura?

  315. *plunks my finger against Leon’s stretched, egg filled belly*

    Like a ripe watermelon.

  316. 50 degrees out there right now, sunshine, no wind, just beautiful.

    *snuggles deeper into recliner in front of the TV*

  317. Patriots look like doo doo today. Sigh.

  318. Phil Sims is a fucking moron.

  319. Yep. This is like watching the Globetrotters lose to the Generals.

  320. 1/4 lb of cheese, because 16 eggs isn’t enough.

    That cracks me up.

  321. I need to see if Wiserbud has this at the record store

  323. Goes good with breakfast blend whiskey.

  324. I need to see if Wiserbud has this at the record store

    I believe he has it in sheet music form as well as vinyl.

  325. When I think of breakfast, the first thing that comes into my mind is a hangover.

  326. I see we still have gigantic asses in the header.

  327. I need to see if Wiserbud has this at the record store

    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/A-0joT9CAAApr-N.jpg:large

    If you look closely at the price sticker, you’ll see it’s from a store that was featured in one of the header pics when wiser started working there.

  328. There is a diner here that serves a double cheeseburger with a fried egg in the middle, they call it The Hangover.

  329. The real question is how many copies does wiser actually own? The true collector will not have merely one.

  330. Perhaps the store should have been named “Venal Edge.”

  331. There is a diner here that serves a double cheeseburger with a fried egg in the middle, they call it The Hangover.

    Presumably the name “Indigestion Belly Bomb” was not a bestseller.

  332. That record cost 24.99. what, dollars? Or some alternate currency?

  333. Quatloos.


  334. That record cost 24.99. what, dollars? Or some alternate currency?

    Federation credits.

  335. Jeez, Sean. Good catch.

    Do you have a secure cooler, Laura?

    I have had things just sitting out to chill on the porch table and chairs this morning/ today. It’s an enclosed porch. Scott did just put all the cakes in a big cooler for me a little while ago, however. He is concerned that mice might be able to get into the porch overnight.

  336. That record cost 24.99.

    The largest cost is a good deal of your dignity.

  337. Almond brittle, frost the cakes, make more truffles…why do I do this to myself on my one day off??

    Should just give them all $10 and a lottery ticket. Sheesh

  338. Should just give them all $10 and a lottery ticket. Sheesh

    You sound like you’re registering Democrats.

  339. Tradition laura! You don’t want to be the one to break a tradition, do you? Actually my sister has no hesitation to shake things up depending on her work schedule/health/amount of “give a shit”/etc.

  340. Jeez, Sean. Good catch.

    I really only remembered because I was the one who put up that header.

  341. Tradition…I’ve been making the same cake for my family’s Christmas for about twenty years. One of my cousins is despondent on the holidays that I don’t bring one, so now I have to do them for Easter too.

  342. That’s funny. If mrs MJ doesn’t show up to a party with some sort of fabulous desert people are kind of disappointed.

  343. Off to Austin for dinner with friends and the girls. I’ll be back later.

    You’re warned. Have a great afternoon you goofballs.

  344. SS fail. I’ll post a picture of my shocked face later.

    Gobi or Sahara, I’m not picky.

  346. But, but, but…its Priority Mail!

    Fuck.

  347. MJ, you and the missus always seem to be cooking good stuff…it would be nice of you to post a recipe or two of your smash hits from time to time. Please! I’m always looking for something new.

  355. Wiser! I needed your gavel earlier for an Executive Decision Making Session on SS opening and whatnot.

  356. Catching up, though, seems like some folks have forgotten their stuff.

  357. Or are busy.

  358. So I’m busy finding all the tools I used to have on a nice workbench in my basement (back when I had a basement like a civilized person) to put in my new toolbox. Now, I own somewhere north of 10 Philips head screwdrivers. I cannot find one of them. Not one. I know where they should be, and they are not there. Someone else in this household knew where I kept them, and I’m pretty sure she took them, used them, and then threw them in a black hole. I found a half-dozen flatheads, so it’s almost like a weird vendetta against me using or owning a proper screwdriver.

    And you wonder why I have a sign-out sheet for the Hostages equipment room.

  359. *coughs*

  360. Puttin’ a padlock on this thing after er’rything’s in it.

  361. …and I’m pretty sure she took them, used them, and then threw them in a black hole.

    WHO TOLD YOU THAT?!!! THERE’S A CODE HERE!!!

  362. I mean,… *ahem*

    No, that never happens. You’re just not looking hard enough.

  363. Wiser! I needed your gavel earlier for an Executive Decision Making Session on SS opening and whatnot.

    we can discuss it in the new thread

  364. The priest started off Mass today talking about guns. Said he was going to have an F-16 by his chair. I thought “I’d like to see that.”

  365. Pupster, that cake pop picture made me clutch at myself, pee my pants, and swallow my gum. Maybe it’s because I’ve been making beautiful desserts all day, but I don’t think so. It’s just fucking funny.

  366. Uhm, you’re welcome?

    I always intend to, but then I never really get around to it. I’ll put our staple recipe in there this afternoon.

    We’ve made it alot, and it’s almost impossible to screw up.

    Chicken and coconut rice.

  368. Yeah, that was pretty funny. Sometimes shit goes wrong, especially with desert. You can kind of improvise in cooking, but not really with baking.

  369. I just sent you the keys to the Recipe site.

    Also, won’t you join us in the new poaste?

  370. I don’t have admin access at the recipe blog. Someone add me?

  371. Pick a thread, numbnuts.
